The 6th annual Taste of Italy takes place this Saturday, October 11 in Pueblo de Los Angeles in Downtown L.A. Hosted by the Italian American Museum of Los Angeles, it’s an evening of Italian culture, entertainment, and of course, food that is easily accessible via Metro Bus or Rail.
Guests will enjoy premier gastronomy from more than 50 Italian and Italian American restaurants, dozens of wineries, and purveyors of culinary specialties. Plus, the celebration takes place at the scenic and historic Pico House–one of the last remaining buildings from the days of Los Angeles’ once sprawling and bustling Little Italy.

There’s also Bus 70 or 76 to Spring/Cesar E Chavez, the Silver Line, and a plethora of buses serving Patsaouras Bus Plaza. El Pueblo de Los Angeles is located at 424 N. Main Street, across Alameda Street from Union Station.
Best of all, Taste of Italy is a Destination Discount! This means Metro riders with valid TAP cards will receive $5 off general admission or a premium ticket at event check-in. Now that’s amore!
